Hi! Hi to myself I guess, because no one is reading for now… I have no idea why I write in english though. I think I’d be more comfortable if I was writing in french but anyway…

Let’s start from the beginning. I’m Anne-So. A girl full of dreams, passionate, stay-at-home, frank, not the kind of person that socialize a lot, although I wish to. My friends say that I’m funny. I try to be kind toward others and I find myself not interesting enough sometimes. I’m very shy when I meet new persons. I’m 18. I have a little brother.

My first passion is reading. I was 11 then and my mother who was usually reading for me before sleeping suddenly stopped because she thought I should grow up and do it myself. I was bored and I was often complaining about that so she kept repeating me “go to the library and take a book”. I’m forever thankful for that. I finally went to the library and then I took a book. I remember the cover, but not the title neither the author’s name. It was a fantasy story and a classic of the english literature. Everytime I discover a new passion, it’s like I take a slap in my face and that’s what happened. The most striking books I ever read since then are: His Dark Materials, Eragon by Christopher Paolini, Tales Of The Otori (my favorite book) by Lian Hearn and Nought & Crosses by Malorie Blackman.

My second passion is Asia. There is this childhood friend who is asian that I met 10 years ago when my mother was pregnant and when we came live there. I was often at her home, playing and listening to her parents speaking vietnamnese. Sometime I was eating some vietnamnese food with her brother, and I thought it was sooo weird but good. It remained on my mind and I think it influenced me.  One day, I was 12, I was watching TV and there was a programm TV about South Korea. The only thing I remember is that at the end of the docummentary, they were explaining that in  South Korea there are noodle dispensers. But things suddenly fell into place and my passion for asia started. My passion for japan in particular started when i read the book Tales Of The Otori.

My 3rd & 4th passions are music and cinema. I can’t live without music and rock is a genre that can make me feel indescribable things. When I was younger I wanted to be an actress. I have had 6 years of theatre and proudly got my national exam with 18 out of 20. Now I gave up on this dream but recently I’m thinking more and more about it…

So that’s it. Welcome to my world. Bienvenue dans mon monde.
